A perfectly private beach picnic or totally deluxe family vacation. Accommodating 14 guests in 5-star comfort & then some, our Casa La Duna Mansion is palatial in size & standard. With its own theater room, pool table & new private pool, it’s perfect for everyone. With its own elevator, it’s perfect for those with mobility problems. <br/><br/>Its private location at the end of a cul-de-sac allows you to enjoy ocean views and sprawling balcony space - over 2,000 square feet of outdoor living on 3 floors - all the more. Reminiscent of old-world plantation balconies, you get sweeping views and constant sunshine. In design, this home recalls a charming Bahamian plantation mansion. In features - a contender for MTV’s Cribs. And in ocean-front comfort? Unrivaled. <br/><br/>Your privacy is guaranteed while staying here. The home is tucked discretely at the end of a cul-de-sac. The front of the house itself is almost completely hidden behind a wall of palm trees. This makes the view at the back all the more your secret. Over 6,000 sq. ft of living space is improved with a further 2,000 sq. ft of sprawling balconies on three floors. Enjoy sunrise across the ocean, as seen from one of many comfortable spots on various balconies. <br/><br/>The main patio - the likes of which you’ve seen on the cover of Architectural Digest - makes an ideal entertaining space. There’s tons of room and lots of patio furniture to rearrange to your liking. Best of all (as of March 1, 2012), there is a brand new private pool to swim in! <br/><br/>As a perfect house for a group, there’s a great variety of living space inside and out. The grand foyer and great room both open to the floor above - soaring ceilings, with spotless tile and quality hardwood floors. This sleek home is custom from top to bottom, with tons of built-ins: bookshelves, flat-screen TVs and a fireplace (**please note: disabled for safety**). The living areas are dotted with Chinese antiques and local accessories - an inviting, eclectic home. <br/><br/>Just a few of the many treats to be discovered: <br/><br/>The best sectional sofa you’ve ever seen: very wide, very long with two in-built chaises. Non-stop entertainment: a pool table, wet bar and a massive home theater room. A gourmet kitchen with a subzero refrigerator, 29" Thermidor grill with double oven and Asko dishwasher, huge center island and adjoining dining room. 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. Sensational views of the Atlantic Ocean: sunrises galore! For sun and sand, just step out the door to the adjacent private beach. <br/><br/>Upstairs, you'll enjoy sweeping views of the water from the interior and exterior balconies. Four bedrooms and four full bathrooms are up on this level as well as two balconies. It's a nice, open floor plan. There are several rooms so comfortable for the children to sleep, watch TV, read or just horse around. The best is yet to come on the third floor, find your stunning master suite and an unending ocean view that’s all yours. If nonstop views from your king bed don’t tempt, vaulted ceilings and master bathroom suite with jacuzzi bath tub will. A few nights in this master suite and you’ll be dragged home kicking and screaming. <br/><br/>As of April 2013, the owners have updated the home with a new sleeper sofa, new 1st level 6th bedroom with 2 queen beds, entertainment center with HDTV and a daybed. This room will be perfect for kids. The 1st floor also includes a pool table, wet bar and a new queen sleeper sofa.<br/><br/>When venturing out, simply step from the property grounds onto the adjacent beach walkover to the beach. We also manage the beachfront house next door, Heaven on Earth. Perfect for families traveling together.
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
Pros: Great location! Great House! Big enough for the entire family. Location was incredible. Walk over the dunes to the ocean. Quiet and secure location. Not one problem with facilities or equipment working properly. Everything worked great and we had a wonderful stay. Dishes and glassware were fine and there was a sufficient amount for our large family. <br/><br/>Cons: House could use fresh paint and updated carpeting. Secondary bedrooms were functional, but not of the quality one would expect for the cost of the house. Linens were the same. Kitchen utensils (pans, cookware, etc) were sorely lacking.
Our family stayed at this property for a week and it was very nice. Overall, the property requires a thorough examination of a handyman's talents to fix some general functions (i.e. locks) throughout the house.
I put my brother and his family in this house while I was next door. They loved the house and had a wonderful time there. The only negative comments I heard were that there were lots of dead love bugs in all the rooms upon arrival, the twin beds were rock hard and the ice maker didn't work.......nothing that they couldn't put up with.<br/><br/>
This house was a very high priced rental and although the house and location were beutiful, many conditions of the house were less than expected. Email was sent to management on issues within the house.
The house was nice, but there was few issues I have to mention:<br/><br/>- Set of dishes was very poor. We even didn't have proper glasses for all of (6 person)<br/>- Grill condition was awful<br/>- Few days there was some service company and nobody tell this in advanced<br/>
overall the home didn't live up to our expectations...for a reletively new luxury property the home was in a state of disrepair and the furnishings and amenaties did not live up to the description on the website...<br/>we arrived and found trim from the outside of the house blown off the side of the home...none of the tv's worked properly, there were big ugly stains in many of the carpets, the gas grill was disgusting and unusable, the beds were not of the caliber of a luxury home, the smoke alarms were chirping. A repair person came to fix the smoke alarms and simply disabled the alarm, he said that we would get a replacement tv and grill that never showed up. There is no way that that property can sleep 14. We struggled to sleep 10 and had 3 kids in one bedroom, i sleeping on a floor. We could not use the amenaties of the resort including the water park<br/>On a positive the house was in an incredible spot and we enjoyed the beach. The office was helpful in booking a couple tee times.
